Product details

Rob's Rag contains harmonies that remind me of times gone by, when people went to halls and village centres to dance to the two-­‐‑step, the waltz, the tango and many other popular dance forms. Ragtime was the forerunner of rock and roll and achieved great popularity worldwide in the hands of composers such as Scott Joplin. The Rag has had a strong revival in the late 20th and 21st centuries -­‐‑ and it
is easy to see why, when this form offers a chance for a variety of moods in the one short, succinct statement.
Rob's Rag follows in the footsteps of many other Ragtime pieces, in offering melodies set with the familiar syncopated rhythm, and a rhythmic drive which is evident throughout. The section in D flat major presents a nostalgic melody which dips in and out of semitones in the same way as a Victorian handkerchief wafting the scent of lavender. The C minor section is equally nostalgic with its falling melodies and plaintive major and minor thirds.
This Rag was composed in 2014 for my long-­‐time friend and colleague Rob Goode AM, a musician who is equally at home playing harpsichord, piano and organ.
